Assistance dogs welcome across the whole property.

We have two double and two single mobility buggies available to borrow. Due to limited availability they must be booked in advance by calling 01825 790 231. 

Can I bring a bike? We do not allow pedal bikes in the garden. Balance bikes and children's scooters are allowed except on very busy days when we may ask you to leave them behind.

Eating and drinking

The Coach House Café is open 10am - 5pm serving cakes, bakes, sandwiches, soup, hot one-pot and hearty main meals.

In the garden, The Shant will be open from 10am - 4pm, weather dependent.

Can I bring a picnic? You may bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden or wider estate, but we ask that you please take your rubbish home with you.


Our shop, located next to Reception, is open 10am - 5pm, so do pop in for a browse. We stock a wide array of homeware, gifts and other seasonal ranges, alongside National Trust favourites. 

You will find our plant sales area just outside the Reception building which is home to a large number of plants and seasonal gardening essentials.  

Our secondhand bookshop has a new home in the Coach House Café building. From kids’ classics to cookbooks via works of fiction from the highbrow to the easy-read – there is something for everyone. 


The wider parkland with walks running down to the River Ouse is open dawn to dusk.

You do not need a ticket to visit the wider estate or to use the car park. 

Can I bring my dog? Dog are allowed on the parkland but please do keep them on a short lead due to grazing livestock. The only exception is East Park where dogs are allowed off the lead. Assistance dogs are welcome across the whole property.
